GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Many Coloradans are raising questions about their current Xcel Energy bill, which may look higher this year compared to previous years.

Customers now have the ability to either pay a flat rate for a whole day or pay based on time of use.

When paying for time of use, mid-peak energy is slightly more expensive on weekdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and on-peak energy is the most expensive from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays. Off-peak energy is least expensive all other times, including weekends and holidays.

Marshall Zellinger, 9 News reporter, breaks it down further and can help customers decide which option is best for them here.
